Book Description

(from Goodreads)


The young widow is just trying to make a life on the prairie for herself and her newborn son. When handsome newcomer Luke Dow shows up at her cabin door, she soon relies on the man’s help with her homestead and dares to dream of the future.

Luke came to the small South Dakota town to build a hotel and make his fortune. But he never expected to care for anyone, let alone the beautiful Cora and her baby boy. When Cora’s land claim is challenged by a neighbor, Luke will do all he can to protect her and her home and claim her heart.


My Review

Cora Anderson is a young widow and new mother living with her deceased husband’s mother, Bertha. When Luke Dow shows up to have his laundry done, Cora is in labor and he stays with her until Bertha returns. That is the start of a close friendship and, eventually, Luke feels like Cora and her son are his family even though she’s still a grieving widow. He’s very protective when her neighbor makes unwanted advances and threatens to take her land when she won’t marry him.

The Widow’s Suitor is an easy, quick read that not only has sweet romance but suspense and drama and is full of people with strong faith.  The characters are described well and even though I read this book in a day, I felt I knew them and I cried at the end (that’s a good sign when an author can make me cry). 

I definitely recommend The Widow’s Suitor to anyone who likes inspirational romance.
